MRJ, Mark Reyes Jr., aka The Kind-Hearted Assassin, will be the main event in tonight's Tampa Bay Boxing event. Pier 6 Boxing Promotions presents Friday Night Fights: Rise Again 3 series Friday Aug. 23rd, 2019 at the Bryan Glacier JCC.
His opponent is journeyman, who came in as a last minute, the day of the weigh-in.
Darel Harris should be given gratitude and appreciative for his willingness to fight short notice. We caught up with Mark Reyes Sr., who said it best... "Harris should be the hero of this fight, because he saved the event." The kid was willing to step in with little to no notice; dropped everything to make the main event of the evening possible." It's a testament to the boxing journeyman that often times gets talked about poorly, or name-called - words like bum, or lazy, or cab driver. When in actuality sometimes (often times) the journeymen of today is to be commended because they make sure up and coming boxers get their work in and experience build up. They save the day for promoters that may be feeling pressure to make sure fans get what they want and deserve.
Tonight we get to see if this welterweight by the name of Reyes Jr. can withstand the onslaught of an experienced journeyman in Harris. Get your tickets at the door, there will also be an after-party set up for everyone to show appreciation for the fighters, trainers, and boxing fans.

What we are all about!
We caught up with DeJuan Blake of Affiliation Management at his cousin, Floyd Mayweather's gym in Las Vegas. We wanted to know what he thought about a possible MayPac2 fight, Pacquiao's performance against Thurman, and Where "One Time" goes from here.
The possible fight of the year could be scheduled for July 20, 2019, at MGM Grand Las Vegas between welterweights WBA Regular Champion Senator Manny Pacquiao against WBA Super Champion Keith Thurman. Both men are considered two of the best in the welterweight division. But if Pacquiao's loses this bout will his boxing career be symbolically seen as the changing of boxer’s best from a new generation of boxers. Ushering in a change in boxing fans' perception of who is considered old and who’s the next level. This is just the scenario Champion Keith Thurman has stated will occur when he wins on July 20th. Does he have a point?
We all remember the days of Manny and Floyd Mayweather being compared, they were even one and two on the pound for pound list for a few years. Both men had not agreed to fight each other until that much anticipated May 2, 2015 bout. Many were disappointed in the performance of Pacquiao, but still felt he was one of the elite fighters in the division. Even though the loss to Mayweather that night, he has seven losses out of 61 bouts, but he is no longer on the pound for pound list for many outlets. In comparison, Thurman has not been on the pound for pound list at all. Some of which is due to the politics of boxing, the other Half has little to do with his actually highly skilled talent but because of inactivity after injuries. Before his layoff ‘One Time” fought two back to back tough fights against the young but dangerous Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter. Pulling out victories in both bouts. At that point, he should have been included in a Pound for Pound list, but because of factions and different promotional and network camps we deal with today, his name was dismissed. From consideration. He, unlike Pacquiao he is 29-0 with zero no contest.
This fight could end up being a serious contender for fight of the year but what does a Manny Pacquiao “L” mean for other welterweights in the division that are considered older and that have not retired?
